Arthur J. Gallagher (AJG) has moved its branch in Brierley Hill to bigger premises to accommodate an expanding team and future strategic development plans.
The relocating AJG branch serves UK SMEs and national affinity partnerships and all their risk management and insurance needs, whether new business, renewals, mid-term adjustments or claims.
The business currently employs 105 people at Admiral House on The Water Front. It is now transferring to nearby Custom House, which could take in 200 workers that AJG is aiming to have by 2020 in line with its planned growth.

“It’s what this move facilitates that excites us the most – the ability to continue on our strategic growth trajectory and welcome new colleagues into the team, equipping them with the knowledge, tools and capabilities to maintain our advice-based culture of customer service excellence,” said Barry Duffin, managing director of the Brierley Hill office.
According to AJG, the Brierley Hill branch has enjoyed consistent growth in customers, with revenue rising 115% in the last five years. During the period, the workforce has also grown from 55 to 105, necessitating the need for a bigger office.

The brokerage giant said the Brierley Hill office is one of two specialist SME hubs within the company’s 50-strong UK-wide network of community broker branches.
